SUSPECT: Andrew Wood, 22 years old, resident of Corona

VICTIM: Confidential female

SUMMARY:
On November 26, 2017, the victim reported to the Sheriff's Central Station she was raped while camping at the Glen Helen Raceway during the weekend of November 25, 2017. The victim was provided a large quantity of alcohol by the suspect, later identified as Andrew Wood, and became sleepy. Wood offered the victim a place to sleep in a nearby vehicle. The victim entered the vehicle and fell asleep and a short time later, the victim woke up and Wood was on top of her having sexual intercourse. The victim never gave Wood consent to have sexual intercourse and believed she was raped.

Detective R. Pahia, from the Central Station Detective Bureau, conducted the investigation and gathered pertinent information to substantiate the rape allegation. Pahia obtained a warrant for Wood's arrest and on December 7, 2017, Central Station Detectives located Wood in the city of Ontario and took him into custody. Wood was arrested and booked into West Valley Detention Center for PC 261(a)(4) Rape of an Unconscious Person.
